Let Me See – Health & Art

“Let Me See” was a showcase of installation, performance art, music and dance based around the theme of Arts and Health. The show featured a traditional Akeyulerre smoking ceremony by the Akeyulerre Healing Centre ladies and presented works by five diverse artists inside the grounds of the Old Alice Springs Gaol.

‘The layers of memory contained in the very structures of the gaol, the high walls topped by rolls of wire, the cells, the bars, the tiny spy-holes in the long corridors, even the grassed quadrangle, were doing some of the work for them. A high point of each of the five pieces presented to the audience in staggered groups of 20, moving from one to the next, was the way in which the performance used the gaol – its physical space and its weighty ambiance.’
